Me & Best Couchsurfing host ever a.k.a. Sean
I went to Calgary this passed weekend for Psi-crisis Training. I’m going to be volunteering at the Sanctuary this year and am very excited. Sanctuary is the space where people go to calm down when they are having a bad “trip”. I’ll be doing low-threshold intervention with these attendees. Its a great way to give back to the community. Everyone at training was very awesome. It got me very excited for shambles this summer and festivals in general. One of the girls in the training was roommates with the guy I was supposed to be couch surfing with. So she took me to there house and made me yummy dinner.
Sean didn’t show up until later in the night but I got to meet the rest of his awesome roommates. Dave who makes awesome leather hats.

They also had a party to celebrate their other roommate’s, Kitty, birthday. We had a bonfire in the backyard. Lindsey let me use her hoop and she taught me the basics of poi.
Kitty getting Birthday Kisses
Did you know they have Hello Kitty Champagne? Kitty got some as a present for her birthday. That alone made my night!
Hello Kitty Champagne! OMG!
We also smoked some very yummy blueberry Shisha tobacco from their wicked hookah.
They also had 7 cats. I woke up to this guy staring at me.
The next day Sean cooked wicked bacon and eggs and then they took me to the lilac festival His girlfriend Jenny has killer 8 year old dreads.

I had a great time in Calgary and met some super awesome people. I can’t wait until this summer. Shambhala is going to be epic. Volunteering at the Sanctuary with Lindsey, road tripping with Ami, and meeting up with Liz again.
